As uncertainty persists on whether the Taliban will sit for face-to-face talks with the Afghan government, Turkmenistan President said that they are ready to host the peace process.

Turkmenistan expressed its willingness to provide political space of the country for peace talks between all constructive and responsible forces of Afghanistan.

Several countries have offered to facilitate the peace process; however, both the Afghan government and the Taliban have failed to remove the confusion over the talks.

Turkmenistan has a long border with Afghanistan and Central Asian countries regularly host events in the border security sphere under the auspices of the UN. The possible consequence of reducing the international forces for ensuring regional security in Afghanistan has become one of the key issues.

The neighboring countries should stand beside the Afghan government, because restoration of peace and stability in Afghanistan results in peace in the region.

While so far many countries including the USA have made efforts for preparing of opposition groups for peace talks but have failed to achieve expected results that could culminate on peace and stability in Afghanistan. But the Afghan people are hopeful that ultimately peace efforts would be positively concluded.
